Nick DePartee is the guitarist for BEC’s Kutless. He tours all over the country with the band playing their pop/hard rock. When he is at home though, he channels his more mellow influences. He decided to give away his first collection of demo tacks, just so people could hear them. Good plan, because we like giving it away!
The tracks are rough, so don’t expect like huge production quality. What you can expect are songs about a man’s journey through life and his quest to find God in all of it. For fans of Glen Hansard, The Fray, and Coldplay (I’m not saying he sounds like them, just that you may like him if you like them).
Click on the link below, save the .ZIP file to your computer, EXTRACT ALL FILES (or click on the opened file) and enjoy the Home EP.
NOTE: The link for this album is being screwy. The link works, you may have to give it a sec. If just clicking on it doesn’t work, then try opening the link in another tab or window. You may get a web page for MEDIAFIRE(which is the server the file is up loading from) saying that the file doesn’t exist. It does, MEDIAFIRE is telling a lie. Sorry about this guys, it works every time I post it, then the moment I look away it start acting funny.
So plan two is if the link below doesn’t work (which while I have been writing this worked for five minutes and then went down within those five minutes), go to Nick’s Myspace page ( Myspace for Nick DePartee) and try it from his page.
